    If the final version of MA-21 Optimus Prime look like this, it is truly superior to the Hasbro version. It actually has the Autobot hood ornament painted, more detailing on the legs and arms, more movie accurate color on the sword and a heck of a lot more chrome. Very nice. Thanks for the pics Nevermore.

    At least, the Photographer there knows how to transform Prime completely.
    When i think back to the Hasbro Shots of the Original MovieLeader Prime, i always remember how they missed transforming his legs.

    (Same goes for the Back/sides of the lower-Legs of Brawl, which could be shifted to reveal more of the Angular plates, having them slightly in a V-Position, while the true Legs keeps unrotated.)

    Way to make Hasbro's Premium Prime look like the half-hearted afterthought that it is :D

    I wonder how much he will cost to import. It is a superior paint job, but I'm not sure its worth it for me to pay more for when the domestic one might be much cheaper. To those of you willing to pay for it though, more power to you! I actually don't care for chrome(I play with my tfs so I know it will chip eventually in my hands), but the orange sword is cool.

    If the chrome on the grill is anything like Henkei Megatron's chest chrome, I think I'd need to make sure the robot mode never stood on anything less than a stack of satin sheets if I didn't want some hardcore scratching.

    Still, very shiny deco. :D

    The chrome makes all of the difference in the world.

    I just canceled my order for the Hasbro version and put in an order for this beauty! :D

    Expensive confirmed. My order at BBTS came to around $90 after shipping. Worth it to me for the best deco of the best Prime mold in the history of Transformers. Your mileage/opinion may vary.

    I think I'll still get a Premium Optimus to keep MISB, but I'll likely get one of these to open. The chrome, extra paint, and orange sword are worth the import price. Hopefully it'll have the G1 transformation sound like the Premium version does. BBTS's price seems a bit steep, so I'll check eBay first, but if all else fails I'll see if I can spare the $90 for one of these....
    Ah what the heck, I pre-ordered one. If I change my mind I can always cancel.

    I'm actually not a big fan of the chrome, it seems a bit too bright. Though I do like the overall look of it, especially the additional orange paint on the sword. But I've already got the Hasbro one and am pretty happy with him, so I'm not sure if I "$80+ to import it to keep him MISB" like it.

    Well, you must not have Prime in the movie, seeing as how the actual truck they used was chromed to the gills.

    This figure is gorgeous and is a true Premium Prime. The chrome makes all of the difference, and it's so being bought. Once again, bravo Takara!

    Cant wait for BBTS to get these in so I can have this version of Prime soon. The more pics I see the better I like it...just puts hasbros version to shame IMO.

    I have got the same feeling. Chrome on the feet... hmmmm It will be transformed just one time and g for display for ever. Considering how cheap is chrome these days I am still happy with my regular Prime with custom blade and extra stickers from reprolabels.
